Celebrate East Asia’s Contribution to Transportation Research

East Asia’s commitment to investing in its transportation networks is reflected in the quality of the papers Elsevier publishes by authors from this region. Below is just a snap shot of some the impactful transportation research conducted by researchers in East Asia who have published in our journals. These articles are free to access online until 31 December 2016. Becky P.Y. Loo, Co-Editor-in-Chief of Travel Behaviour and Societysets the scene:

“The rapid economic growth of countries in East Asia, particularly China and South Korea, has witnessed both enormous opportunities, as well as challenges, of transport infrastructural development and related investment. With the setting up of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank, even more large-scale transport projects (ranging from airports, container ports, expressways to high-speed railways) are likely to be financed. Research on the impacts of various transport investments and innovations on the spatial transformation, economic growth, safety and people’s mobility in the region is much needed. Researchers in East Asia, having in-depth local knowledge and first-hand experiences, are well placed to make valuable contributions to shed light on these research issues.”
